Best Web Design software?

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by MattEvers, Oct 2, 2005.

    What is the best software for web design. I want something where I can edit both html and the viewable site. I bought a copy of web page maker a long time ago, and have been impressed with the user-friendlyness(if that is a word) of it. I don't know though if using that will hurt me in SE rankings, and the different options and tools are limited in the sofware.

    I have also used dreamweaver, and like it a lot as well. I haven't bought a copy yet, just used it on my friend's computer.

    What do you guys recommend? Thanks in advance.

    I would strongly recommend using Dreamweaver MX 2004 or the new release included in Macromedia Studio 8

    I use Dreamweaver MX '04 and it's the best I've used so far (out of 4 or 5 including frontpage)

    Notepad... ok, I sometimes use the deluxe Programmers-Notepad (freeware), sometimes I even use the source-view of VS.net.

    (or get forced to use Frontpage, Dreamweaver, etc.) :D :D :D

    No really, I like coding in the source view, it's the only way for me to really get it to work. And yes, my sites look like it, but I'm a programmer :D

    Yeah, I think dreamweaver may be my best bet.

    I took a few java classes in college and we had to use notepad a few times, just to see how many errors we would make. I stuck with the IDE...

    Dreamweaver is the best one, it checks to see if there aren't any mistakes in the code + there are lots of features

    Hi,

    I think your choice will heavily depend on your work. If you are a busy web designer, you'll need to go with Dreamweaver, Frontpage or Adobe Golive.

    I was a Frontpage user but I've recently switched to Notepad++ and Filezilla (both free). I only have a couple sites. Of course, at least for me, it would be difficult to manage more sites with just an enhanced text editor.


    My two cents,

    Alfredo

    I personally recommend dreamweaver MX for designing software.

    As far as optimizing pages, stick around this and other forums and read everything you can about optimizing. On the design aspect, keep your sites fast loading, spam free and cleanly coded, and it will help your SEO.

    Dreamweaver and FrontPage are probably the most used WYSIWYG editors. If you don't use them wisely you can get some horrid code.

    If you are going to be doing webs suggest you learn html and CSS even if you use a WYSIWYG for quick development.

    Good luck
